Well, what IS ethical clothing? Ethical clothing comes from a place where employees are treated well; they are paid a fair wage, have positive, enriching work environments, and are rewarded for their skills and extra time. In addition to the fair treatment of people, ethical clothing also comes from a place where owners and managers are respecting the natural world. Energy efficiency, low waste, and using sustainable resources are marks of ethical manufacturing.
Should we tolerate any less?
Right now, ethical clothing seems like a fad in America. However, as we become more aware of apparel supply chains, I am confident that more people will demonstrate their concern by purchasing clothing from sources they trust.
